Quick post tonight, or should i say this morning! The clocks have gone back here in the UK, so we get an extra hour asleep or so they say, however as i sleep about as well as a.....well something that doesn't sleep very well, so i guess that means another hours crafting! :)
I am having trouble finding places to display some of the makes that i keep. So tonight i knocked up this super easy hanging storage for them. (I've led it down to photograph as i haven't decided where to hang it yet).....
How much easier can storage get eh? Just a few wooden clothes pegs, stamped on with black archival ink using a stamp of your choice (i used a large journey stamp with lots of postage marks and writing on), then thread some string or nylon cord through the metal spring like i have done.....
I am going to leave my pegs as they are, but you can colour them as you wish. Here i used red pepper alcohol ink to give it some colour....just be careful not to ink the inside where the peg grips your make, it could leave a mark.
The great thing about this, is that you can hang them anywhere. Under existing shelves between the brackets, across doors and windows, wherever you feel like it.
It's only a very simple idea, but the pegs have potential to be artified up to the max if you wish.
Another great hanging display option are these lovely little wire hangers which i purchased from Jennie at The Artistic Stamper. There is also another style too which has a book plate on it for naming if you wish.
Ideal for giving a nice antique "arty" feel to your work.
I hope it proves useful to someone out there. Thanks, and Nite all. :)
